The Torture Of Homosexuals - 1950s to 1980s

This is the first of two parts on STONEWALL. It documents the systematic Torture of Homosexuals in the 1950s through the 1970's to the Present.

Homosexual men and women were rendered mentally disabled through the torture of Lobotomies, Electroshock Treatments, Forced Chemical Treatments, Castration, Aversion Therapy, and Experimental Treatments, and this was happening all over the world.

It was all basically a continuation of Tortures used by the Nazis in their attempts to convert homosexuals to heterosexuals in the Concentration Camps.

Aversion therapy is still used today and was used on children as young as 4 years-old. Even today kids are forced into caps or facilities designed to convert them from homosexual to to Straight, despite massive evidence that it has never worked, and subjecting children to Aversion therapy that often ends in Deep depression, decades of psychological problems, and too often, Suicide.

These practices help to build the levels of rage and anger that FUELED THE RIOTS OF STONEWALL, and triggered the LGBTQ MOVEMENT, which now thrives and continues to fight to overcome homophobia and fight for EQUAL RIGHTS.

It is my hope that you will WATCH the EMBEDDED MOVIE and read some of the HISTORY of the LGBTQ Movement.

.....HOLY SHIT...That's all I have to say...Stupid cursed humanity...

I grew up when much of this was still happening (1950s, 1960s, 1970s).  I went into the Merchant Marine (supertanker ships) where discovery of being Gay meant death, being thrown over the side of the ship to drown. The vast majority of humanity felt that you were, "Better off dead than Queer."  It was a crime to be Gay.

Somehow, in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions (not all of them, but the greater majority), if they label you as evil, they can do as many inhumane things to you as they want to, all in the name of their God.  The fault is no so much in the theology as it in the people.  Often, when people decide to do things they know to be wrong, they amply find a way to justify.

Even today, in the USA alone, EVERY YEAR, about 640,000 Sexual Minority youth, as young as 12 years old, go onto the street, and 39% of those were thrown out of their homes after “Coming Out” or discovery of their homosexuality or bisexuality, because of conflicts with moral and religious values. The vast majority of those parents are Christians.

In America, Half (50%) of ALL boys who attempt or succeed in killing themselves, are Gay or Bisexual.  If you include girls, 30% of ALL CHILDREN who attempt or succeed in killing themselves, are Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian, or Transgendered. 85% of ALL Sexual Minority Youth have thought seriously about committing suicide (73% in a 2004 study). A gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender and/or questioning youth commits suicide every five hours and 48 minutes.

50% of gay males experienced a negative parental reaction when they came out.

More than 30% of lesbian and gay people have suffered physical violence at the hands of a family member.

Sexual Minority Youth were more likely to report symptoms of a major depressive episode than heterosexual youth, with gay males significantly more likely to meet the criteria for a major depressive episode than heterosexual males (42.1% compared to 24.4%). GBLT adolescents were also more likely to have posttraumatic stress disorder.

Once kids end up on the streets, kids face violence, rape, sexual exploitation, disease, untreated HIV, alcoholism, drug addiction, suicide and exposure, leading to a Death Rate among street kids that is 11 times higher than that of other children5,000 kids die on the streets of America each year, for an average of 13 Kids dying every day on American Streets.

In conclusion, there is still a very long way to go to reduce the inhumanity facing Sexual Minority youth, just in America alone, let alone the rest of the world.  Our greatest hope is always in the youth of each generation, to end the inhumanity, the hate, intolerance and vilification of Sexual Minorities.

Hi, I can supply you references below:

A reminder that if you want to play the video on page one, you must download the the PDF document to your computer.  Apparently DA no longer allows the playing of embedded videos in PDFs.

Also, the link I had for YouTube source for the video on Page one is now dead.  If you find any other dead links, please let me know.

I highly recommend renting or buying the DVD STONEWALL UPRISING… $13.49 by PBS. I used it as a reference in a few places. It is a valuable reference for anyone interested in Gay History.

No one can know what god wants or thinks, he never came down and told anyone now did he? Religion is cancer, it's made to control others, not to help people but to forbid them certain ways to live. It sorta leads to a closed mind in my opinion, if a book and your society tells you about something, and you don't spend one second on thinking if you actually should do that... mmmmhh that's weak, and not to forget gay marriage is allowed in only countries with low religious influence, so is getting rid of religion making us more accepting? Still sorta strange we renew our chemistry books all the time, we find out more about it, more detailed, or maybe completetely different facts and no one wants to get teached things that were accurate 50 years ago. But they still follow that 2000 year old book to the death. gg humans.

Your comment is very well said, but I would add something to it.  Most people both need and demand to be controlled by religion. Even worse, they demand to be controlled in great detail.  In Christianity, Jesus gave people just 2 Commandments to follow: Love god and love your neighbor.  Obviously, if you love your neighbor you will not steal, rape, murder, cheat them, etc.  But this is not good enough for most people.  They demand to be told exactly what they can and cannot do, in great detail.  But they miss the point.  You can follow your religion's rules to the letter, even give money to charity, and still get to 'heaven.' Jesus told them that they must "Love their neighbor." Spirituality is about your own personal beliefs, while Religion is like an exclusive club with thousands of rules.  Religion and churches are made up of people, and each religion is based on what people wanted at that time.  Religion can be a tremendous crutch to lean on when you are suffering. 

If I wanted to label myself, I would call myself a Humanist.  I choose to be a good man out of my own desire to be good, not because of the threat of a hell or the promise of a heaven, nor from a belief in a god or gods.  I personally do not believe in Gods, but I respect most people who do.  Did you know that we can create the God experience in your brain by energizing an electromagnet over your 'Front Right Temporal Lobe' of your brain?  This mimics what happens when we are under great stress (mental, emotional, physical or spiritual stress), grief, anxiety, and/or fear, OR at times of deep reflection (such as during meditation). When this area is stimulated, people experience vivid visions involving a comforting presence outside of themselves, typically accompanied by a visual manifestation in the upper visual sphere. 

In the entire history of mankind, Christianity and Islam account for the vast majority of homophobia and crimes against Sexual Minorities.  Before Christianity, homosexuality was actually seen a good and special thing in aboriginal tribes in the Americas, Australian continent, Island communities and so on.  Shamans, Medicine men/women, seers, tribal teachers tribal negotiators were typically homosexual.  American native peoples referred to us as Two-Spirits, we were the bridge between the male and female spirits.

The vast Persian empire, the Greek empire and the Roman Empire all treated homosexual sex as part of normal sexuality.  In ancient times, they did not see people as homosexual or heterosexual, it was only a matter of who you chose to have sex with. Did you know that the Sacred Band of Thebes, the most famous army of the Greeks, was made up of homosexual couples?  The entire army was made up of male lovers.  Plato sleeks of the advantages of having an army of male lovers, for who could turn and run in cowardice in front of their lover?

This may be a shock to you, but the original Christian New Testament (Bible), written in Coptic Greek, does NOT say anything bad about homosexual sex.  It is the TRANSLATORS of the bible who say homosexuality is a sin. Many books have been written on this and I have written about it as well.  Translators have taken a word-pair (two words used together) to mean homosexual sex, but this is not at all what those words mean in Coptic Greek.  Everything you hear about homosexuality being a sin is a LIE.  Further, in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the eyewitnesses of the words of Jesus, there is not one word, not one hint of Jesus ever saying anything bad about homosexual sex.  Therefore, any Christian telling you that homosexual sex is a sin, is wrong.  There are now a number of Christian churches who say that homosexual sex is NOT a son, when done in the confines of a Gay Marriage/Relationship.

CONCLUSION: Scholars have proven that the biblical translations about homosexuality being a sin are false, but most Christian churches are far too invested in the lie to change their teachings.  Science has now proven that people are born homosexual and that it is seen throughout the animal kingdom, especially in mammals like us.  Therefore, homosexuality must be part of God's plan (if there is a god).  Religion has been at war with Science for thousands of years.  It will take a long time to admit the truth, if ever.

I imagine that you do not have an interest in Christianity and Homosexuality, but if you have freinds who are Gay and Christian, you might give them following 3 links to my papers about it, to show them that God, Jesus and the bible do not say that homosexual sex is a sin:

Sodom and Gomorra were two ancient Early-Bronze-Age cities in a fertile region of the Middle East, near the Dead Sea.  The time is shortly before dawn on 6-29-3129 BCE, and 600 miles (966 Km) from Sodom & Gomorrah, there are two Samarian Astronomers observing the skies.  They observed a fiery body traveling across the night sky.  They inscribed its path and it relative course and position against the stars on a clay disk, called a Planisphere.  Dr. Hempsall and Alan Bond deciphered the clay disk and used computers to recreate the night sky thousands of years ago. They pinpointed the sighting of the ancient astronomers to shortly before dawn on June 29 in the year 3123 B.C.
The asteroid, which was about 1.25 Km (0.78 Miles) in diameter, exploded above the ground with a force of a 10,000 megaton nuclear weapon (100 times more powerful than any nuclear weapon on earth).

That's terrible! Nobody should have to go through with things like that, no matter what their sexual orientation is. It sickens me that this actually happened to people, even if they'd done absolutely nothing wrong. :(

Yes, it is terrible.  It is not even a matter of Islam, it is amateur of using religion as an excuse for brutality.  Iran also intimidates and/or forces Gay men to have Sexual Reassignment Surgery (cuts off their penis and make a vagina) to turn them into women, and to take Lesbians and turn them into men.  Iran has the highest rate of Sexual Reassignment Surgery in the world, and the vast majority of it is involuntary (do it face death).

Science has proven that we are born Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Asexual, Transgender and everything in-between, yet still religions ignores this and continues to vilify, murder, torture, and discriminate against Sexual Minorities, all in the name of their God and prophets.

The things that people do these days sickens me :( Even if I'm not a religious person, I still know that God loves all of us unconditionally and -as far as my knowledge goes of religion on this subject- wouldn't punish people for who they love, and yet people take it upon themselves to punish those who have apparently done wrong
